Five Challenges for New Real Estate Agents (And How to Overcome Them)

For those who are just entering the world of real estate, it can be overwhelming to keep up with the changing markets, juggling multiple sellers, all telling you "sell my house now" and buyers, and stay ahead of the game. Whether you’re seasoned or green, it’s an industry filled with twists and turns, many of them unexpected.  New real estate agents need to remember, however, which of these are temporary and which ones are part of the long-term job. SetSchedule CEO and real estate investor Roy Dekel shares some of the scary factors of being a real estate novice. The good news? Most of them are temporary. FearsWhen starting a new career, or quite frankly starting with anything new, there’s going to be a feeling of excitement tinged with not a little bit of fear and/or doubt.  Long-term real estate investors need to learn to push past these fears.  This obviously isn’t going to be an overnight process, but proper training and consistent experience will go a long way to replace your fears with confidence not only in yourself but also in your skills. The word “no”: Nobody likes rejection, and it’s very easy to take personally.  While it’s only natural to feel like rejection is a personal attack, in reality, it’s nothing more than an answer to a proposed situation or question.  It’s not ideal, but it could only be temporary, and the thought process, motivation, flexibility, and even life situation of a buyer or seller often changes over time.  If a rejection was ultimately on good terms, then follow up with the people at a later date to see what’s changed in their lives and if you can help in any way. Fair market values: Not everybody likes change, and learning to navigate and adapt to it can be difficult, but it’s inevitable in every aspect of life, including real estate.  Values change by the day, so stay up-to-date on current values to map the direction of the market. Reputation: Warren Buffett once said that building your reputation takes 20 years, and five minutes to ruin.  If you’re just getting started, then you aren’t going to have much of a reputation to speak of.  But that means you can build your reputation pretty much from scratch into anything you want to.  Stay consistent in your work and advertising, and treat everybody, from clients to rivals, with respect.  And always, always be on your best behavior. Business plans and goalsReal estate investing offers so many ways for you to make money and create value for others.  If you’re a novice, then you need to learn the ins and outs, so that you can safely take immediate action helping sellers in your area, and our "tips on selling your house" article is exactly what you need in order to do so. This helps you adapt and change your progress as necessary.   ------------------- SetSchedule has changed the way real estate marketing is viewed, by changing the way REALTORS® access clients and listing appointments.

    Finding high-quality vendors is another blog post I will be focusing on. Also after much consideration, I think I will be moving in the direction of educating my website visitors on HOW they can own a website, get leads from SEO or social marketing…all without making it a full-time job. Im glad the article inspired a response. Real Geeks make a good website using the best IDX currently available that will produce leads (IDX broker). You’ll have to pay to drive traffic to the site and you will be beholden to real geeks to keep up with market trends. However so far in my experience they have done so. Thank you so much for leaving a comment. It means alot to me. I’m sure my readers will appreciate your insight.
